    Hi,
    did you mange to set up Integration beatween SCOM and Lenovo XClarity Administrator?
    We would like to monitor HW of our Lenovo Servers withouth installing IBM Platform/Director Agents on Windows OS. So this mean that we are monitoring servers HW Agentless over IMM.
    I have work with HP, DELL, Fujitsu MP’s for HW monitoring and it is simple to add HW monitoring over ILO, DRAC….
    But with IBM/Lenovo this is rocket sinece.
    Any advice is really welcome.
